You want love with your lunch?

Homeless men and women in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have a friend in 10-year-old Liam Hannon. "Whenever I see them, they seem like they're sort of sad or depressed, but when we go over to them they sort of light up and become more open," he explains. That's because Liam isn't alone. He's bring lunch to the homeless.

He's launched a project called Liam's Lunches of Love, and some of his pals help him. He got the idea from a summer reading program, and an educational Web site. He and his friends prepare about 56 brown bag lunches each week, and he tries to vary the menu. "Sometimes peanut butter and jelly or ham and cheese or turkey and cheese," he says. Plus fruit, a snack and water. Liam says he feels proud that he's doing something good for the world, even if he's making just a small difference.
